Iowa State men’s basketball has had a difficult offseason. The Cyclones still have four scholarships open after losing multiple players to transfer after the season and missing on recent transfer targets, including Michigan’s David DeJulius — who chose Cincinnati on Thursday over Iowa State.
Over the course of the week, the final two former Cyclones have found new homes to play basketball.
Former ISU forward Zion Griffin returned closer to his hometown of Chicago by committing to play for the Illinois-Chicago Flames of the Horizon League. Griffin announced the decision Monday on Twitter. The junior will have three years to play two and will have to sit out the 2020-21 season. Griffin saw his minutes decrease as the 2019-20 season went on.
Terrence Lewis will play for South Alabama next year, Stadium’s Jeff Goodman reported Tuesday. Lewis had a difficult career with the Cyclones, seeing his minutes fluctuate and never cementing his place in coach Steve Prohm’s rotation.
